This rare platinum Lange 221.025 represents the best of Lange's simpler watches. It offers a well-balanced dial layout, with a seconds subdial opposing a power reserve indicator. The design was originally taken from one of the company's early pocket watches. The wider 1815 collection was originally released to commemorate the birth year of Lange's original founder, Ferdinand A. Lange.

The watch itself is in excellent condition, with light marks on the case and bezel appropriate for a lightly-handled platinum watch. The strap is an original Lange strap, and is fitted with the solid platinum pin buckle.

This watch comes with the Lange box, booklets and original warranty paper.

A. LANGE & SÖHNE

From the ashes of the Cold War, A. Lange & Söhne's relaunch in 1994 reintroduced the world to both the brand and the concept of fine German watchmaking. When its first four watches debuted, they formed the crest of a resurgent wave of high-end watchmaking. This period marked the high tide of the watchmaking renaissance that began in the late 1970s as a response to the Quartz Crisis. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Lange has since gone from strength to strength, building up a highly-focused range of watches that show off its signature complications and Teutonic aesthetics.

While other brands look to their own history for inspiration, Lange takes a broader view. The brand prides itself in being a thought leader, being one of the first manufactures to produce an in-house manually wound chronograph from scratch a full decade before Patek Philippe. At the same time, Lange also draws design cues from its surroundings, with the most famous example being the 'outsized date' window being inspired by the Five-Minute Clock at the Semper Opera House in Dresden.

This unique combination gives Lange a unique position. While the brand is part of a large luxury group and produces more watches than the highly-revered independent watchmakers, Lange collectors are arguably more passionate than their contemporaries who focus on other brands. The brand's positioning as a challenger while adhering to traditional watchmaking created an alluring combination that managed to excite even the most cynical of collectors, and continues to do so over 25 years after its revival.
